Reviews

Verdict: After her highly successful debut, The House at Riverton, Morton once again creates an intricate family puzzle spanning generations. From the Victorian era to the present day, Morton follows her striking characters in richly distinctive backgrounds. Strongly recommended for readers who enjoy intergenerational family sagas. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 12/08.] Background: A four-year-old is found abandoned on a dock in 1913 Australia. The port master and his wife take in the little mystery girl and raise her as their own child, now called Nell. After her adoptive father passes away leaving her a tiny trunk and a book of fairy tales, flashes of memory return to Nell, in particular that of the mysterious woman known to her as The Authoress. She returns to England to search for her true identity, but Nell's long quest is not completed until after her death, when her granddaughter Cassandra starts to uncover the dark secrets of the aristocratic Mountrachet family in Cornwall.-Joy St. John, Henderson Libs., NV Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
